    I just saw this obituary today! Lester, Doreen & Carolyn – I am so, so sorry for the loss of Adele, and I send my deepest condolences! I pray that God will comfort you and give you peace. I loved your mom – I bowled with her and Lester and have been thinking about them constantly! In fact Mark (my son) and I were talking about them just last month!

    Dear Aunt Adele,

    I was deeply saddened to hear about your passing. You were not only my aunt but also a guiding light in my life. Your love for bowling and your unwavering support in my tournaments meant the world to me. I will forever cherish the memories of you and Uncle Lester gifting me my first bowling ball, personalized with my name. It remains a precious possession, a symbol of your encouragement and belief in me.

    The times we spent together on the boat, with you preparing delicious lunches, will forever be etched in my heart. You brought joy and warmth into those moments, creating lasting memories that I will forever hold dear.

    Moreover, I want to express my gratitude for being my pillar of strength, my “Dr. Phil” when I needed guidance and a comforting voice. Your wisdom and compassion provided me with solace during challenging times. I am truly grateful for everything you have done for me.

    Your presence will be sorely missed, and the love I have for you will continue to grow. Though you may no longer be physically here, your spirit and the impact you made on my life will remain with me forever. I will forever love and miss you, Aunt Adele.

    With heartfelt sympathy,

    Craig Reeves
